Types of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are categoriezed by degrees, according to the severity of the injury.  A first degree burn is the least severe and normally does not require medical attention.  The most severe burn is the fourth degree burn, which reaches muscle, tendon, ligament, or bone and may lead to amputation or even fatality.  

There are a number of different types of burn injuries:

  • Thermal Burns: This is the most common type of burn, and is caused by exposure to severe heat.  A thermal burn can be caused by fire, steam, hot water, hot metal, or a number of other factors.
  • Radiation Burns: A radiation burn is caused by exposure to nuclear radiation or ultraviolet light.  A tanning bed is an example of a source of ultraviolet light that could lead to a burn injury.
  • Chemical Burns: Chemical burns are caused when a person is exposed to caustic chemicals such as an acid.
  • Electrical Burns: When high voltage passes through a person’s body, he or she has suffered an electrical burn.  These burns usually leave a severe exit wound.
  • Inhalation Injuries: A person can suffer burns to his or her respiratory system if he or she breathes a toxic gas or fumes from a fire or chemical.

Types of Brain Injuries

The traumatic brain injury lawyers at our firm have worked with a number of victims who suffered a brain injury because of someone else’s negligence or actions.  Brain injuries are classified according to the specific part of the brain or head that suffered trauma.  

The following is a list of some of the more common types of brain injuries our lawyers are familiar with:

  • Concussions: A concussion occurs after a blow to the head, and can cause bleeding or nerve damage when the brain is violently pushed against the skull.
  • Contusions: A contusion is bruising on the brain that is the result of an impact.
  • Diffuse axonal injuries: These injuries are mostly caused by car accidents and falls, and they are the result of the brain moving around in the skull.  Roughly 90% of victims of this type of traumatic brain injury remain unconscious, while the remaining 10% are severely impaired.
  • Coup-Contrecoup: This type of brain injury causes damage to two areas of the brain: the side where the initial injury or impact occurred and the opposite side.
  • Recurrent traumatic brain injuries: These brain injuries are common amongst athletes and they arise when a brain injury is sustained before a prior brain injury has healed.  These injuries could cause ocular (eye) and respiratory failure, among other issues.
